backwards man

Shirt: Glassons
Jeans: Dotti
Horse: Somebody else's :(

What is that horse doing in my photo?! It must have snuck its way in, because I definitely did not force my boyfriend to take me for a drive purely to visit some horses! Clever horsey.

My boyfriend refers to me as "Backwards Man" whenever I wear this shirt, because the buttons down the back of the shirt make it look like it's being worn back-to-front.
He also says it looks like I'm wearing a doily. So many insults generated from the one shirt! But I liiiiike it so very much. Unfortunately it now has giant multicoloured smears across the front of it, as I decided it would be a good idea to test lipsticks out on the back of my hand while wearing a white shirt. Boooo. One million silly points go to ME.

I must go to uni now and be bored out of my little socks. By the way I signed up for hellocotton, haven't really played around with it yet but it seems a bit better than Bloglovin'. No offence, Bloglovin'. Hope you had a good weekend and such. Bye bye!

  1. Does look a bit backwards if you see the back. Must be a pain to button, but I think it looks fine.

    1. Haha luckily you don't have to button it up, it is pretty much just for decoration. :)

  2. It's pretty! I really like the top with the purplish pants! Sometimes boys have no idea what's cute! My brothers used to tease me about this brown skirt I used to own, but I swear that thing was adorable- and lucky! I got two job offers in that skirt! Love the horses again btw!

  37. After a little absence I'm just catching up on your blog & laughing away at your commentary as per usual. My boyfriend has been known to make similar 'doily' comments whenever I wear lace... we can all just agree that boyfriends just don't understand the world of pretty clothing. Those remarks aside, I'm truly loving these photos of yours; the lace top looks great paired with burgundy pants! :)

  41. HAHA! your boyfriend's comments sound like something my own bf would generate towards my clothing. It's ok, I still think your top is gorgeous and it's the crochet design and the buttons at the back that make it so much more lovely! :D

  50. My boyfriend likes to insult my cardigans - he thinks they are the international symbol of the elderly. Although karma is a bitch - he fell snowboarding and hurt his hip. He now says "Ooh my Hip" about ten times a day :)
